Nvidia GTX 1080/1070 GPU Cooler Shroud Leaked?

Alleged GTX 1080 Benchmarks Surface


Benchmarks for what is rumored to be Nvidia's upcoming GTX 1080 GPU have surfaced, showing us the GPUs performance in the popular 3DMARK benchmarking utility. 

The new GPU is rumored to be using 8GB of GDDR5X memory, which runs at a clock speed of 2500MHz, giving the GPU an effective clock speed of 10000MHz, which would give the GPU 320GB/s of bandwidth if used on a 256-bit memory bus.  This is slightly less memory bandwidth than Nvidia's existing GTX 980Ti. 

The clock speeds of this GPU are rumored to boost to around 1.8GHz in game and have a base clock of around 1.6GHz, though this remains unconfirmed at this time.

When looking at the below 3DMARK Scores for what is alleged to be the GTX 1080 we can see that in 3DMARK Extreme that it achieves a score of almost 9000 points, which is higher than what we would expect from an overclocked GTX 980Ti, though only by around 250 points or so. 

In 3DMARK 11, a test that runs at 720p, the score is actually very similar to what we achieved with our reference GTX 980Ti, though it is worth noting that this test was done on an Intel i7 3770K CPU, whereas the results that we have measured on a GTX 980Ti have been taken on a stronger, overclocked Intel i77 4960X CPU.

Provided that these results are true this shows that the GTX 1080 will perform only a little faster than a overclocked GTX 980Ti at stock, at least in 3DMARK Fire Strike Extreme. Let's hope that this new GPU will be able to top our graphs by a higher margin when we are able to test it ourselves, as comparing this data to our own is not really an apples-to-apples comparison. 

Hopefully, we will hear more from Nvidia over the next few days and weeks regarding this GPU, as we are very excited to get into some GPU testing.

Looks a little funky.

The extreme benchmark is only 1000 graphics points away from a decently clocked 980 Ti while the performance benchmark is 6000 graphics points away from a decently clocked 980 Ti.

Depending on the % gain from a decently clocked 980 Ti I may or may not get 1 having seen the performance numbers of certain games at 1400P.Quote

Well, if this is the case, consider me disappointed.Quote

I'm waiting for the team red with Polaris atm myself. I would definitely buy a Sapphire AMD card. I can't see myself parting with my Vapor X though peeps are still getting £250 on the bay for them. I can really understand why thoughQuote

Keep it as a collectable

The Sapphires are indeed quite lovely cards to own.Quote
